HOW MUCH IS DUE

L’amount of the single and universal allowance is determined on the basis of the ISEE submitted by the beneficiary child’s family unit, taking into account the age of the dependent children and numerous other elements.

In particular, it is expected:

  • a variable share modulated progressively (let’s go from a maximum of 189.2 euros for each minor child with ISEE up to 16,215 euros, to a minimum of 54.1 euros for each minor child in the absence of ISEE or with ISEE equal to or greater than 43,240 euros). The amounts due for each child may be increased in the case of large families (for children after the second), children up to one year of age, children aged between 1 and 3 years for families with at least three children, mothers under the age of 21, families with four or more children, parents both with income from work, children with disabilities;
  • a share as increases to compensate for any economic loss suffered by the family unit, if the amount of the allowance is lower than that which derives from the sum of the theoretical values ​​of the family allowance (family component) and the average tax deductions (tax component) , which would have been perceived in the regime before the reform.

The single and universal allowance it is paid by INPS and is paid to the applicant or, upon subsequent request, in an equal amount among those who exercise parental responsibility, by crediting a bank or postal account, or by choosing the domiciliary bank transfer method.

When filling out the application, the requesting parent will be able to indicate the terms of payment chosen and you will be able to enter, in addition to your payment details, also those of the other parent in the case of the option to split the allowance 50% between the two parents. If the requesting parent does not indicate the payment method and details of the other parent exercising parental responsibility, the latter will be able to do so independently by accessing the application already submitted by the requester with their credentials. In this case, the payment of the fee for the second parent takes effect from the month following the month in which the choice was communicated to INPS.

In case of exclusive custody, the applicant may request payment of 100% of the amount due. The other parent remains entitled to change this choice by accessing the application using their credentials.

In the case of appointment of a guardian or foster carer pursuant to law 4 May 1983, n. 184, the allowance is recognized in the exclusive interest of the protected person or the minor in foster care.

For newborns starting from 1 March 2022, the single and universal allowance is due from seventh month of pregnancy.

  • the birth or adoption bonus (Mom bonus tomorrow);
  • the allowance for families with at least three minor children;
  • family allowances for families with children and orphans;
  • the birth allowance (so-called baby bonus);
  • tax deductions for children up to 21 years old.

The single allowance it neither absorbs nor limits the amounts of nursery bonus.

The Check is compatible with the use of any other cash measures in favor of dependent children provided by the Regions, autonomous Provinces of Trento and Bolzano and by local authorities.

Furthermore, it is compatible with the Basic income. For recipients of the Citizenship Income, the amount of the allowance is paid, with the same methods of disbursement of the RdC, by crediting the RdC card of which they are in possession.
